A loan of $3,775 helped a member to purchase materials, such as soaps, scents, colorings and other items, to make cleaning products.

Saldivar Poty Group's story

The Saldivar Poty group was formed thanks to current general director Maria, who makes a living making and selling cleaning supplies. She contacted an adviser at a weekly meeting in the area about working with the Women's Entrepreneur Committee. Once she learned more about the program she was able to bring together 17 women who are now passionately working jointly and with solidarity on their 13th loan cycle with the program. They consider themselves to be enterprising women who fight to provide their families with a dignified and decent life. Maria has made a living making cleaning supplies for a number of years. She is in charge of the production and then later sells the products. She has a small sales post that she would like to expand some day. She is requesting the loan to purchase materials like soaps, scents, colorings and other items to make her cleaning products.

In this group: Maria, Justina, Rosalina, Eustacia, Dominga, Andresa, Marcelina, Cornelia, Luz , Irma, Francisca, Shriley, Ursulina, Nancy, Blasida, Maria, Rosa
